Arsenal faced Tottenham Hotspur in an exciting edition of the North London Derby in the Premier League. The match ended with Arsenal winning the game with ease with the scoreline being 3-1 to Arsenal.
While the game was played at The Emirates, the fans of either team were roaring with passion. Pushing and motivating each of their teams to give every single fibre of their physique. The game started with each team player already in each other faces, try to be as physical as they can be. While there were very few cards shown during the game, quite a few tackles were being laid in. The game started with Arsenal pushing forward and trying to keep the ball with them. While not deep in the defensive half but instead around the halfway line.
Arsenal started the scoring in the 12th minute against Tottenham Hotspur. Emile Smith Rowe scored from a low cross assist from Bukayo Saka. The second goal was scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 27th minute. The player replicated the iconic Henry knee slide celebration to celebrate his 50th goal at The Emirates. The last goal was scored by Bukayo Saka in the 34th minute following a last-ditch tackle by Harry Kane falling back on his feet. In the 79th minute, Heung-Min Son scored a goal for Tottenham but it was too late to less by then.
Tottenham Hotspur Bottled It Again Against Arsenal
Tottenham Hotspur was not in their element during the game against Arsenal. While many players didn’t do the best they could. It was visible that one of them wasn’t in the right headframe, that being Harry Kane. Since his return to the team, the player has become a shell of the player he was. During the game, he had a total of 25 touches of the ball. But his pass accuracy was just 45% while only having one shot on target in the game. It could be seen that the player doesn’t want to play for the club anymore. While Harry Kane is the most important player in the team, it must be stated that his performance was awful. The third Arsenal goal started with Harry Kane tripping over the ball, running back and tackling the ball back to the feet of Bukayo Saka.
Arsenal, The Much Needed Comeback In the League.
Arsenal after losing their first three games in the league was under a lot of criticism. Which was deserved due to them crumbling against Chelsea and Manchester City. But the team has now won 3 in a row with Tottenham being the latest team they defeated. It must be said that each transfer is done by Arsenal this season is making sense.
Currently out of the 6 players bought, 4 have already made their position their own in the starting 11. Arsenal again fielded a squad under the average age of 25 which goes to show how young the team is. It also displays Arsenal’s Emphasis to play younger players and create a long term project.
